Rebellion! Texans launch push for secession as civilian monitoring of Jade Helm takes off

Texas has always had a pension for secession, since it was absorbed into the Union in 1845. Independent and free thinking, Texans place a healthy mistrust in the Federal Government. With US forces now sprawling out over the South West, could there be a better time to push for secession?

Today, the Texas Nationalist Movement is kicking off their “Take Texas Back Tour,” with speaking dates booked at hotels and other venues throughout North, East and Central Texas. The group says it aims to collect signatures to get Texas secession on the 2016 ballot. That isn’t actually possible—only the legislature can get referendums on the ballot in Texas—but the separatists hope to court volunteers and supporters across the state.

Mistrustful of the secrecy shrouding Jade Helm, Texas civilians have started monitoring the activities of Federal troops alongside units from the Texas State Guard.

Texans said they don’t trust state officials and plan to try to monitor Jade Helm themselves. Some already have created “Counter Jade Helm” Facebook pages and a website to submit activity reports and map their surveillance.

“We’re the neighborhood watch of this program,” said Eric Johnston, a retired Arizona firefighter and sheriff’s deputy who now lives in Central Texas. He plans to drive to two of the training sites Wednesday in Bastrop and Junction to search for activity.

“It would be wonderful if we pull up and there’s two guys in Humvees getting coffee at Starbucks. I don’t think that’s going to happen,” said Johnston, 52, of Kerrville.

Johnston said an Army spokesman told him at the Bastrop meeting that no foreign troops would participate in the training, but Johnston was still concerned.

“Would you like to wake up tomorrow morning and see a dozen Russian soldiers? Or U.N. troops?” he said, adding, “Do I think we’re going to be stormed by Russian troops? No. Not yet. My opinion is they’re practicing something they’re going to do in Afghanistan. Look at the places they’re picking: steep terrain, desert. … It’s the secrecy that hurt them.”
